It's 7th of October, 2019!
My latest horror/legend short comic 'Bloodsucker' is out on Comixcentral!
Here's the link: https://www.comixcentral.com/vendors/katartpics-comics
My second graphic novel 'Elves Get Organized', which is a humorous adventure
with elves, cats and nature, is there as well. They are available there as PDFs, and you need a Paypal account.
If you don't have one, contact me, and we will see how to arrange it.
A paperback version of 'Bloodsucker' is soon to be released as well.
I have a several paintings to be finished. Some for Artmajeur, and some for Finland.
My left shoulder-arm-hand, is still painful, apparently frozen shoulder - which I think it is
- takes a looong time to heal.
I have paintings up on Artmajeur.com, and more will come.
I have four different galleries on my page at the moment, from Mindscapes to Cats.
Check it out!
If you are in Helsinki, Finland, I have some works (some of them are rented)
in Helsingin Taiteilijaseuran Taidelainaamo, the link is above.
I still have plans of continue to writing a book, but, about that later.

take my time.
I'm fascinated by the light of the paper, and the
meditativeness of painting.
I call many of my paintings
I have also painted a series called 'Expansion', with acrylics.
These are reflections of inner and outer space, which is an recurring theme of mine.
In my art, I want to
share the glimpses of the oneness of existence, that especially,
precious nature, amplifies so well.
Awe and peace.
My paintings are visual poems. I am called to paint something.

This means for me, I am in
It means I am more like a conduit, not a chosen genius.
We all have the capacity, just in different domains.
I can give some
rational meaning to some parts of my paintings,
but I think the
fascination is what the subconscious, or Consciousness,
your world view, brings forth. I do think there are archetypes,
direct our experience in a certain direction.
But I also think that
the power of art is that the viewer finishes the artwork.
The artwork works partially as a mirror.
